THE SHOP OF PLANT POTIONS
TO BEAUTIFY AND NOURISH YOUR BODY
INCORPORATING RITUAL, SLOW PROCESS
AND ANCIENT RECIPES.
Hey Beautiful! Are you ready to delve into the super natural world of body treats, tinctures and hair dyes?
I fell in love with Henna... the day I walked into an Indian grocery store and out of curiosity bought some green powder called Henna. I experimented with adding different ingredients over the years and finally sourced a high-quality supplier. That was 15 years ago. It is with great delight and passion that I bring you these fine quality plant extracts, extracts that work with nature, work with you and honour the ancient ritual of henna and beautification through herbal potions.
Super natural Herbs Henna products are sourced from the finest henna plants, packed fresh and sealed to ensure that when you get that gorgeous mud pack on your head, or face, you are getting the richest and deepest effects of the natural powders. I am dedicated to sustainability in farming practises and my henna is sourced from Indian farmers who get paid a fair wage and who take pride in their beautiful crops of Henna and Indigo.
Henna is an ancient beautifying and colouring treatment. Henna dye was used in Ancient Egypt thousands of years ago—found on the mummified hands and toes of Pharaohs. The Henna Plant (Lawsonia Ernemis) has been loved and revered for over 5000 years for its healing, medicinal and beautifying properties—many of yet are still waiting to be verified by Western Science (and therefore ‘legitimated’).
In India and Pakistan Henna is worn by brides-to-be and their families, signalling love, prosperity and luck, and the bride-groom’s name is secretly written into the Mehndi designs on the hands.
Henna is above all, I believe, about ritual and honouring the slow process. Everything nowadays is designed to be quick, fast and neat—and Henna is a beauty treatment that calls for a slower ritual of sensual immersion.
Henna is deeply earthy and takes time to dye the skin or hair, Henna requires the user to be patient and to take some time out, and Henna requires you to give in to the messiness. Henna invites you towards ritual, the ritual of time-out for honouring your divine self.
What I love about Henna is the way it makes my hair feel and look and the process of making it up. I love that this beautiful plant has stood the test of time and counteracts the insane amount of toxic chemicals that women are willing to put into their hair every month.
My Henna products are all natural. They smell of the earth and connect you to the earth. When I apply henna to my hair I feel a whole lineage of women, all the way back to Cleopatra, The Queen of Sheba, Nefertiti—all using henna to make their hair thick, luxurious, rich in colour and healthy.
The Indigo Powder is an all natural powder, also ancient, scientifically known as Indigofera. It has been used and traced to Indonesia, Egypt, and several other Asian Countries. A huge amount of Indigo dye bought today is synthetic. Ours is completely plant derived. Indigo adds the hue of deep blue richness, and is used for dying clothes, leather, and hair. When this deep velvety blue is added to the redness of the henna it produces a rich chocolatey black. If you dye white hair or grey without henna first…the indigo will turn your hair bluish-green, so always make sure there is a base of red henna on your grey hairs!
My Henna products can be used as well for Mehndi design and will require the henna artist to mix up their potions to achieve the dark hues they love.
I want you to fall in love too, with the ritual of henna, and to enjoy the process of hair dying and beautifying. My products are made with love, all derived naturally and shipped fresh. I pride myself on the quality of these products and I know your hair is going to love you for it.
Henna is also a goddess-send to those of us who want to mix-up our hair tones. Yes, it does cover greys with the addition of Indigo, and it creates a rich depth of tone.
Henna works with your natural pigments, and creates depth and texture. It creates shine and thickness.
